If a driver has been racing for years, they’ve normally hit every track on the circuit.

Though for Larry Jackson, that wasn’t the case till this past weekend. Jackson made his first start on the streets of Toronto as part of the Pinty’s Grand Prix of Toronto weekend.

Unfortunately, he didn’t run as strong as anticipated as a broken driveshaft u-joint ended his race early.

Despite the issues, Jackson had fun over the weekend getting to try the 11-turn temporary street course for the first time.

With a podium finish under his belt earlier this year at Sunset Speedway, it seems the schedule continues to expand on a weekly basis for Jackson. Going into the second half, he has at least three races on his schedule.

“Schedule is always wide open,” he told pre-race. “As long as the car stays together, we’ll be doing Three Rivers and Mosport (now Canadian Tire Motorsports Park) in this car, and then probably Edmonton in Joey’s car. Saskatoon we have nothing, down east we have nothing, but we never know.”
